Dialysis Treatment for kidney failure: Which type of dialysis is right for you

Episode 111 Dialysis Treatment for kidney failure: Which type of dialysis is right for you. There are 3 types of dialysis treatment. Dr. Qasim Butt will discuss the differences in the types of dialysis treatment as well as the benefits and challenges of each. In Hemodialysis (done in a center or at home), blood is pumped out of your body to an artificial kidney machine and returned to your body by tubes that connect you to the machine. In Peritoneal dialysis (done at home), the inside lining of your own belly acts as a natural filter.
